First, I'm new here...and totally hooked! So many great ideas!! I have a question for you... Do you have a special way for students to take home books from your library to read at home? Any creative ideas? This is third grade so it can't be too primary. I want it to be seen as something of a privilege too....a motivation to read. Our Title I teacher sends books home in an envelope and requires a parent sig. for "credit". I was hoping to do something more FUN on a rotation type schedule. From the looks of things in the past, many students are recording the same few (primary) books they have at home over and over on their reading logs...I know, the public library and school library are available...but there's something special about the teacher's books, isn't there?
